"Over the past twelve months, we have experienced a marked increase in the number of clients who require on-site accounting support through FC Assist."
Armitage joins the firm from Gildersome-based Mazars, where she held a similar role.
Her appointment will bolster Revell Ward’s growing ‘Financial Controller (FC) Assist’ service, which sees the firm provide project-based, on-site support to clients who require assistance with accounting areas including year-end and management accounts in the absence of an employed financial controller.
Commenting on Armitage’s appointment, Revell Ward director and audit team lead, Karen Borowski, said:
“Over the past twelve months, we have experienced a marked increase in the number of clients who require on-site accounting support through FC Assist.
“We are also working more frequently with clients who typically use the ‘big four’ audit firms, but require independent accounting support to produce statutory accounts and audit working papers due to strict independence regulations.
“Karen’s appointment will therefore be a valuable addition to the team and enable us to facilitate this work while also providing ongoing guidance and mentoring to our own business support team.”
